DUBAI: Abu Dhabi health authorities have reiterated that only two hospitals in the emirate have been designated as facilities for handling coronavirus patients, and also advised residents to report suspected cases to them.
In collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), Al Rahba Hospital and Al Ain Hospital have been allocated to the isolation and treatment of cases of COVID-19, state news agency WAM has reported.
Meanwhile, the public can contact Estijaba (Response) toll-free on 8001717, in case of a suspected coronavirus infection, or to approach one of the testing centers across the emirate including the mobile drive-thru testing facility in the Zayed Sports City.
The emirate also said that Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City, Cleveland Clinic in Abu Dhabi and Tawam Hospital in Al Ain were not dedicated to handling suspected cases of coronavirus, hence would neither receive suspected cases nor influenza patients.
In the meantime, the mobile drive-thru testing facility in the Zayed Sports City has conducted 2,934 tests since its opening until April 1st, Wednesday, ensuring all measures are in place to safeguard the health and safety of the community. It's open daily from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm every week-day.
